Rob Sampson was at Spartan II restaurant, where folks talked about Singer’s long service to the volunteer fire department here. He joined Plantsville Engine Company 2 way back in 1966, and he served the department as a firefighter, the company secretary and in the fire police. Sampson, who’s wife is a volunteer firefighter in Wolcott, said appreciates the efforts of men and women who serve their communities.
